New Era for Hockey at RGSW

Hockey Development Gets the Green Light
5 Mar 2020
School News

We are delighted that Worcester City Council Planning Committee unanimously approved planning permission for the new Hockey facility at Perdiswell. This is the result of seven years of work by Worcester Hockey Club and RGS Worcester, working with Worcester City Council. We hope to create a Hockey facility of which Worcester is proud and which will give the opportunity for hundreds of boys and girls to enjoy playing this sport. Thank you to parents, prospective parents, alumni, local primary schools, Worcester Hockey club members and friends who  contributed so positively to the Consultation process.

The project involves building a facility to include 2 international standard water-based Hockey pitches, together with a changing facility on site. The site will also have grass Football pitches and parking available.

This is a very exciting opportunity for RGS Worcester and by working with Worcester Hockey Club, we will be able to provide further pathways for RGS Hockey players to develop in their sport. The facility will also provide opportunity for pupils from local schools to experience the sport as part of our Outreach Programme. The Hockey Centre will give our pupils access to three high quality Hockey pitches (including the astroturf at RGS The Grange), and also encourage tournaments and other competitions to be played at the facility. Who knows, we might be able to entice a team for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham to train here and inspire our pupils!

We will keep everyone informed as the project develops over the next few months.
